Unfortunately, the coaching and counselling field hardly focuses on privilege, power or intersectionality. However, psychological safety isn't distributed equitably in our society. The more privilege an individual has, the safer they are. As a result, white privilege or other areas where we have privilege will blindfold us in our role as mental health professionals. Therefore, we may unconsciously harm BIPOC clients or other clients who belong to marginalized groups.
Anti-oppressive/ anti-racist practice is a vital element to provide ethical services. This program supports you in breaking the cycle of systemic violence and providing ethical services to your clients.
Participating in the program, you will have a safe space to do your personal work to implement anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice. The duration of the coaching depends on where you are at and what your goals are. Participants will receive regular feedback on their anti-racist/ anti-oppressive practice. It consists of regular zoom calls, education, homework for self-reflection and email support. The program is trauma-informed.
What will you get out of it?
“Natalie is an exceptionally skilled facilitator with a profound grasp of group dynamics and the broader systems that shape our lives. They fearlessly pose difficult questions, drawing from their personal experience, and demonstrate an unwavering dedication to advancing racial justice. Throughout our work together, I felt both nurtured and challenged, held accountable to my own growth potential and yet always, always safe.” - Hannah, Somatic Coach
"I chose to work with Natalie as I experienced them as willing to meet me at my edges, courageously challenging me to explore my relationship with self and others in terms of privilege in the many systems I am a part of. Natalie’s ability to hold challenge AND compassion as a mentor, allowed me to uncover many layers and see and feel with more clarity. My year working with Natalie continues to resource me." Kerry, PhD CPCC ORSCC PCC ACTC, S-EIA
